Blues’ Oshie Destroys Rick Nash…Twice
St. Louis Blues rookie center T.J. Oshie is having a pretty good first season in the NHL, and to some teams/players he is making his presence felt. These two incidents took place in a home-and-home series between the Blues and the Columbus Blue Jackets. Blue Jackets captain and franchise forward Rick Nash gets a bit of the business from Oshie, once in each game. The first one is a little tough to see, it happens at about 0:05 at the top-right of the screen.
Oshie wasn’t done there. The very next night, Nash tries to get back at him and Oshie just forearms him straight back to the ice. Either Nash is going to have to toughen up, or his teammates are going to have to learn to protect him better. Star wingers can’t be manhandled like this on consecutive nights.
